April 2017: Generating Your Success

On Wednesday, April 12th, we gathered to talk about Physical Due Diligence and Budgeting. We started out as we always do, with our Business Update from Executive Director Doug Quattrochi.


We had a special One-on-Two Interview with Mike O'Rourke, Mike Deluca, and the hilarious Rich Merlino. Mike and Mike dove into Physical Due Diligence. They covered topics like: inspections, maintenance, condition of units, and rehabbing. Mike Deluca actually buys a property every week, so he knows a thing or two about what to look for when purchasing an investment property. This was a very entertaining and informative interview where we learned from landlords who know the ins-and-outs of acquiring property.

one on two interview

We've all thought to ourselves at one point or another: "Am I making as much money as I should be?". No matter if you've pondered this or not, how would one find out? Derek Chojnacki joined us to do just that! He talked about budgeting and creating a better-than-average profit and loss. We learned how to make more money by sitting at a desk!

"Mike and Mike have a wealth of knowledge about buying rentals and will teach you to differentiate between the good, the bad and the fixable."- Doug Quattrochi, Executive Director/Landlord
